Complete Guide to the Transportation, Supply Chain & Logistics Industry From Plunkett Research 2017

HOUSTON, Texas – Plunkett Research, Ltd. recently announced an important market research and competitive analysis report, Transportation, Supply Chain & Logistics Industry Almanac, 2017 edition. A complete market research report, including forecasts and market estimates, technologies analysis and developments at innovative firms.

Transportation is one of the world’s largest industries. In total, during 2016, core transportation revenues in the U.S. were an estimated $1,058.0 billion, according to Plunkett Research estimates.  Worldwide, these revenues were an estimated $4.7 trillion.  This includes air, rail, water, pipeline, courier and warehousing segments.

At about 6% of global economic activity (GDP), transportation’s core sectors add up to a remarkably efficient industry, considering the fact that transportation is a vital service to nearly every other sector of the economy.  In fact, thanks to increasing use of advanced information systems and such strategies as intermodal containers (sending freight via containers that are easily transferred from ship to rail car to truck as needed, without repacking), the transportation industry’s productivity is excellent.
